Central Board of Secondary Education will soon release the CBSE Board Exam 2021 schedule for class 10 and class 12 exams. Board Secretary Anurag Tripathi has put all the rumors to rest and has confirmed that the Board would conduct the exams and release the exam schedule soon. The exam schedule would be available on the official site of CBSE. With this official clarification, all the queries on cancellation or postponement of CBSE Board exams have been put to rest. As per the PTI report, Tripathi said, “The board exams will happen for sure and a schedule will be announced very soon. The CBSE is making plans and will soon reveal how it will do test assessments.
During March-April we were flummoxed as to how to move forward, but our schools and teachers rose to the occasion and transformed, trained themselves in using new technology for teaching purposes, and within few months conducting online classes using different apps became normal.”Board Secretary however has not revealed anything about the format in which the exams would be conducted neither has he commented as to when the exams would be conducted. Usually, the board exams are conducted in February-March every year. Till now, Maharashtra and Gujarat Board have decided to postpone the Board Exams 2021 till May. The exams for both class 10 and class 12 in both states would be conducted in May instead of February- March. Meanwhile, the CBSE and CISCE – the two national boards, are considering the reduction of the syllabus of Classes 10 and 12 Board Examinations 2021 further. As the schools remain closed, the boards are reportedly considering a reduction of the syllabus to 50 percent or even consider extending the academic year and delaying Board Exams 2021 by 45 – 60 days.
